Arlene Marinas is the Director and Senior Migration Consultant of Tentmakers Migration Assistance (MARN1385457). Originally from the Philippines, Arlene moved to South Australia in September 2005 with her husband, Edmund and two daughters who were six and four years old. Her youngest daughter was born in South Australia a few years later.
Prior to migrating to South Australia, Arlene was a Licensed Chemical Engineer previously working for San Miguel Packaging Products in various technical roles in the Philippines. Arlene had initially applied to migrate to Canada but was unable to afford the liquid asset amount they required. She trusted that this was not God’s will and withdrew her application. She then began applying for her Australian visa.
In the process of the Australian visa application, Arlene and her husband faced multiple challenges and were lacking in certain criteria. They however believed that they were destined to build their home in Australia. Two months later, Arlene received a letter from the Department of Home Affairs stating that Australia had created a new visa subclass and that she had fit the criteria. She and her family were granted a provisional visa which progressed into citizenship
